Firstly, the Warriors’ victory in Memphis wasn’t shocking. However, the intensity of the game was. Also, many would say that there was some questionable officiating against Golden State, but that’s behind us now. The Warriors stunned the Grizzlies in a 117-116 victory. Moreover, it was Klay’s late 3-pointer that sealed the game. Eventually, Ja’s 34 points weren’t enough for the win as his potential game-winning layup was blocked by Curry. Morant and Jackson Jr. were the stars of the game for Memphis, putting up 34 and 33 points respectively. On the other end, the Warriors’ scoring was led by Jordan Poole, who scored 31 off the bench. We know the award was handed out already but who’s your Most Improved Player? Predictions for Game 2 of Grizzlies v Warriors favor Golden State to an extent. And after a controversial Game 1, it might make sense.
Iguodala’s status will be re-evaluated in a few days but he remains out for now. Memphis has multiple players on their injury list, starting with Williams, Tillie, Aldama, Adams, who could provide some much-needed defense in the paint. Williams is the only one most likely to return for Game 2. Green’s early ejection sent fans into a frenzy. Have he stayed in a game, the Warriors’ win could’ve been a bit bigger. Memphis should look out for their defense in the paint. Golden State outscored them there 56-44, the biggest deficit in all categories. So why do Game 2 predictions of the Grizzlies v Warriors favor Golden State? Curry and Klay will likely perform better in the next game. Having Draymond back will also mean trouble for Memphis. This wasn’t a good game by the Warriors and they still won. The Grizzlies need to take Game 2 to have a chance in this series.
